Tennis Lessons should be accessible…and affordable!
I apply 30+ years experience playing tennis (many of those as a USTA 4.5 tennis player and team captain), along with a USPTA Tennis Professional certification, to improve clients’ tennis games.
✓ I will impart a love for this lifetime sport with enthusiasm and skillful teaching that “meets you where you are”, considers your goals, and maps a reasonable strategy for improving your game.
✓ I will not only work on stroke fundamentals, but I will also improve your mental strength on the tennis court as well as situational awareness (stroke patterns, game and set scores, evaluating opponents for strengths and weaknesses).
✓ Almost every session includes mini-tennis (to focus on “touch” and how to “feel the ball”), volley, and then groundstroke and finally serve/return practice. I tailor each of these portions for your goals and abilities, and then we drill down into your individual goals (how to hit a topspin lob or topspin serve, how to open up the court and dictate play, how to hit a slice return, “chip and charge”, etc).
My tennis clientele includes teens trying to “get to the next level” on their high school teams as well as adult beginners (through USTA 3.5/4.0 ratings) looking to learn this lifetime sport.
Moving The Needle
in the fight against chronic diseases and obesity
As a certified Primal Health Coach and NASM Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) in the Denver area, I combine a holistic approach to nutrition, exercise and lifestyle to help my clients break the cycle of chronic disease and obesity. The fact is that everyone presents their own set of unique challenges, and not everything works for everyone, so an attentive health coach and personal trainer treats each client as an N=1 case. I actually went through the same process, got remarkable results, and enabled my passion (through certification and a personal transformation story) for helping others do it also.
Personal Training and Health Coaching – Areas Of Focus
After almost (30) years as an engineer, software developer, executive, and analytics consultant, I knew that I wanted my “next career” to give back in some way. I volunteer and facilitate Financial Peace University, because I feel that bad finances can add a huge stressor to people’s lives, but how could I personally “move the needle” in regard to people’s health? I’ve been an active member of gyms for most of my adult life, and I carry a NASM Personal Training Certification (NASM-CPT). However, I’ve watched boot camps and personal training sessions happening all around me through the years. And you know what I found?
They rarely were “moving the needle” in regard to client fitness!
How I Can Help
When people are looking to make major health changes — from losing weight to addressing chronic conditions, transforming their fitness to recharging their vitality — it’s easy to become overwhelmed. This is where a combination of health coach AND personal trainer can make all the difference. Leveraging the expert nutrition and lifestyle guidance of a health coach – along with customized personal training plans to address the physical fitness component – can be the most powerful investment one can make in his or her health.

Let’s Start With A Free Discovery Call Consultation
Primal Health Coaching is the singular coaching certification founded in scientifically validated ancestral health principles. The context for this model, the acclaimed Primal Blueprint, supports maximum vitality and well-being through the timeless integration of strategies across a broad spectrum of lifestyle dimensions, including nutrition, fitness, sleep, stress management, sun, play and enrichment. The goal is straightforward even while the biological mechanisms are complex: normalize hormonal responses by adapting ancestral principles to modern day lifestyles and effecting desirable change in gene expression patterns toward optimum functioning. The result is a reasonable plan that leaves plenty of room for individual design and preference.
The National Academy of Sports Medicine Personal Training Certification (NASM-CPT) is one of the most recognized and respected certifications in the fitness industry. NASM’s Optimum Performance Training (OPT) model provides an outstanding structure and consistent platform to systematically regress – and then safely PROGRESS – clients from varying fitness levels to achieve their ultimate fitness goals.
I needed the education and expertise, that comes with BOTH of these certifications, to best assist YOU in reaching your health and wellness goals!
